Jason: Thought I ran you out of here yesterday.

Sam: I'm back.

Jason: You get your hands off!

Sam: You got to pay for taking those pictures, Jason -- right now.

Lisa: Oh. It seems so right being here with you.

Jamie: It is right.

Lisa: I must be dreaming.

Jamie: If you were dreaming, then you wouldn't feel this.

Lisa: Oh!

[Jamie laughs]

Lisa: I feel that.

Jamie: Hmm. See? There's your proof. You're wide awake.

Lisa: Oh. Jamie, when we were apart, everything reminded me of you -- a song on the radio. I'd see a love scene on TV and I'd start crying.

Jamie: Well, you're not going to have to watch any more of those scenes. We're going to make our own right here.

Lisa: I've missed you so much.

Jamie: I never want to be without you again.

Lisa: Make love to me.

Vicky: Amanda, I have been so worried about you.

Amanda: How did you even know I was here again?

Vicky: I called your parents' house. Hello!

[Alli coos]

Vicky: You've gotten so big, even your peach fuzz is getting longer. Oh, can I hold her a sec?

Amanda: Sure.

Vicky: Oh, come here, baby! Oh, do you know how much your aunt Vicky has missed you, huh?

Amanda: Can you stay for a while?

Vicky: Oh, I canít. I've got another errand to run, and I've got so much to do, and I'm not supposed to do that much, actually.

Amanda: How are you feeling?

Vicky: Well, thrilled to be out of the hospital, but forget about me, Amanda. How have you been?

Amanda: It's been a nightmare.

Vicky: Oh. I can imagine. But you know what? Pretty soon, it's all going to be over. It's just going to be a bad memory.

Amanda: How can you even say that? Drew Marsten took these photographs to blackmail my father, and now he's hired somebody to release them to the papers!

Vicky: Hey! Ok, calm down, Amanda.

Amanda: Oh, would you be calm if it was happening to you?

Vicky: I'm sorry. I was just trying to help.

Amanda: Sorry.

Vicky: I don't mean to be insensitive about it.

Amanda: Vicky, I just don't understand. Why are they doing this to my family? How much more of this are we supposed to take?

Rachel: Are there too many of them?

Mac: It's twice the number we usually publish in a year, let alone spring.

Rachel: Well, they're awfully good, especially the novels.

Mac: We'll just fill up the bookstores with Cory publications.

Rachel: Well, do we have the budget for it?

Mac: We will find the budget, believe me.

Rachel: Oh, it's so good to have you back and running things. I can't tell you.

[Knock on door]

Mac: It's good for me, too. Come in.

Evan: I know you're busy. But I think there's something that you should hear.

Rachel: I don't like the look of your face.

Evan: It's about the takeover.

Jason: You're making a mistake, fella.

Sam: You made the mistake when you took those pictures, Jason.

Jason: Look, I took them, but I didn't give them to the newspaper! Ah! Oh!

Sam: Get up, Jason.

Jason: Sam, you got the wrong guy.

Sam: Get up! Get up!

Jason: Ooh! Uh -- uh --

Sam: Come on, Jason. Get up, again. I'm not done with you yet.

Jason: Oh, you have the wrong guy.

Sam: If you're not up in three seconds, I'm going to start fighting dirty.

Jason: I didn't have --

Sam: One.

Jason: Any of the negatives. I didn't have any --

Sam: Two.

Jason: Of the copies --

Sam: Jason --

Jason: At all.

Sam: It was you --

Jason: It was Drew.

Sam: And you're going to pay for it.

Jason: It was Drew.

Sam: You're going to pay for it -- ah. Ah. Oh, man.

Sam: All right, get up.

Mac: Bad news?

Evan: It's Bennett Publishing again.

Rachel: It can't be.

Mac: You got the S.E.C. to rule against them.

Evan: Well, somehow, they got the ruling overturned.

Rachel: They can't do that.

Mac: Tell us the whole story.

Evan: Ok, now, it's just a rumor, but it's from a very reliable source.

Mac: They simply cannot be interested in the takeover again. They must have spent millions already.

Evan: I agree with you, Mr. Cory. It doesn't make much sense.

Mac: And my friends in Washington are certain they've dropped the whole idea.

Evan: I'm afraid that's old news. Apparently, Bennett has reconsidered.

Rachel: Well, what are they going to do?

Mac: They'll do what they did before -- start buying our stock.

Evan: They already have, according to my sources.

Rachel: No, that's impossible. We would have to be notified if large blocks of Cory stock were being sold.

Evan: That came from the board.

Mac: Our board of directors?

Evan: Bennett got to them with some deal.

Mac: Ah!

Rachel: That's not legal.

Mac: Well, they probably have protected themselves somehow. I just can't believe this.

Rachel: We just thought it was over. We thought we were in the clear.

Mac: Still, I should have been alert to the possibility. If this thing with Amanda hadn't come up --

Rachel: Is there anything we can do?

Evan: I'm sorry to tell you this, but it looks like only a day or two.

Rachel: No.

Evan: It looks like Bennett is going to take control of Cory Publishing.

Singer: I relive the same old dream day and night memories of love I knew I couldn't live my life or so it seemed my heart cried out for only you oh I believe in love but I believe in you things you do I'm falling in love again with you a broken heart can mend if given time I know why love is forever love is forever with you with every passing day I realize that time will never heal the pain

Lisa: Jamie, what's wrong?

Jamie: Nothing.

Singer: You're all that I've been thinking of

Jamie: I was just thinking how beautiful you are.

Singer: Can't we fall in love again? Oh, I believe in love

Julie Ann: The Ramsey report, Mr. Cory.

Mac: Thank you, Julie Ann.

Evan: It's the strangest thing I've ever heard of. I've never seen anything like it.

Rachel: I don't understand how they're able to do this.

Mac: Would you mind leaving Rachel and I alone for a minute?

Evan: Sure. Excuse me.

Rachel: Did you find something?

Mac: We can forget about it being illegal. It's well within the law.

Rachel: What is?

Mac: The board of directors selling their stock. You signed the ok.

Rachel: No, Mac. No, I didnít.

Mac: Look at it -- it's your signature.

Rachel: Yes, but --

Mac: They must have made a few bucks on that deal, a few million bucks.

Rachel: I don't remember signing this, Mac.

Mac: No. I wouldn't think you would, Rachel. It's the fifth clause down in an otherwise totally routine agreement.

Rachel: Oh. I don't know what to say. This must have been a day when I was swamped with work and I didn't -- I'm sorry. I don't know how this got by me, Mac.

Mac: I can well understand how it got by you, Rachel. You were trying to oversee 20 departments. What I don't understand is how it got by Evan.

Rachel: I don't know.

Mac: I mean, that's what he was hired to do. Something like this that is potentially dangerous to Cory -- it has to be caught. That's why we pay him all that money -- to catch it.

Rachel: It was my mistake, though. And my signature, that's going to cost us our company.

Mac: No, darling. We're still alive, aren't we? And it's not over yet, is it?

Zack: I can name that tune in two notes.

Ronnie: Who's out there? Zack?

Zack: "Never can say goodbye."

Ronnie: You lose.

Zack: "Every time we say goodbye."

Ronnie: Not even close.

Zack: "I say hello, you say goodbye." It's a "goodbye" in there somewhere. I could read your lips.

Ronnie: Maybe you've got "goodbye" on your mind.

Zack: Oh, me? Uh-uh. I hate goodbyes. "See you later" -- I like that.

Ronnie: It's definitely later, all right.

Zack: You look good.

Ronnie: I can't see you. You're standing in the shadow.

Zack: So how have you been?

Ronnie: I -- I've been ok. You?

Zack: Busy.

Ronnie: Doing what?

Zack: Business.

Ronnie: Hmm. And you decided to take a break and came to hear me sing. I'm flattered.

Zack: Yeah, I wish I had time to take a break.

Ronnie: I got a feeling I got flattered a tad too soon.

Zack: No, you know I love to hear you sing.

Ronnie: But tonight it's business as usual.

Zack: Yeah. I have a meeting with Harry. He's refinancing this place. Is he here?

Ronnie: He's in the back, in the office.

[Ronnie sighs]

Zack: So, how have you been?

Ronnie: Didn't you just ask me that?

Zack: "Ok" is not an answer.

Ronnie: Well, what do you want me to say?

Zack: I missed you, Ronnie.

Ronnie: It's not enough, Zack.

Zack: Hey -- you're -- wait a minute here. You were the one who cooled this relationship.

Ronnie: What relationship?

Zack: Hey, look, I thought we were going along fine.

Ronnie: "Going along fine" is exactly what was happening -- nothing. We weren't going anywhere.

Zack: Well, I thought we were.

Ronnie: That's because you're in control. You call the shots, see other people.

Zack: No, I didn't see other people.

Ronnie: Courtney? She's not other people?

Zack: She's a friend.

Ronnie: Oh. This is going nowhere. It's obvious you don't want to make a commitment.

Zack: But you do?

Ronnie: I'd like a chance at one, yes. Is that so wrong? I mean, we've been casual for so long, always keeping it light, always light and never serious.

Zack: Uh -- look, I -- I don't know what to say.

Ronnie: There's nothing to say, Zack. I know how you feel, and now you know how I feel. That's it.

Zack: No. That is definitely not it. No, too much has gone on for us to give up on each other. You think about that? Please? See you later.

Evan: Julie Ann?

Julie Ann: Can you hold on one moment? Hi, Evan.

Evan: I want all my calls held.

Julie Ann: Until when?

Evan: Until I tell you otherwise. It's an emergency, and I do not want to be interrupted.

Julie Ann: Even if it's urgent?

Evan: I just told you there is a crisis. Nothing is more urgent than that.

Julie Ann: Yes, sir.

Evan: Just take messages.

Julie Ann: Yes, sir. I'll have him get back to you as soon as possible.

Julie Ann: Hi, Rick.

Rick: Are you busy? Is this a bad time?

Julie Ann: As good a time as any. What brings you down here?

Rick: You.

Julie Ann: If it's those parking tickets, I'll pay them, I swear it.

Rick: Oh, well, it's too late for that. You've been found guilty and sentenced to dinner.

Julie Ann: Dinner?

Rick: At the Pelican with me tonight.

Julie Ann: Oh.

Rick: They have this terrific singer there. What do you say?

Julie Ann: I would love to.

Rick: Great.

Julie Ann: But I canít. Something's happened here and I think I have to stay here late.

Rick: Ah -- well, I don't think I'm going to let you get off that easily. Now, this singer does two sets. Now, if we miss the first one, we catch the second one, all right?

Julie Ann: Ok. Well, I'll call you as soon as I get off work?

Rick: Ok. I'll be at headquarters.

Julie Ann: Great. I'll see you then.

Rick: You bet. Bye.

Sharlene: It's open.

Vicky: Oh. Hi, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Hey, Vicky. You're just in time to try a piece of blueberry pie.

Vicky: Oh, thanks. I don't want blueberry pie. I want Jason.

Sharlene: Well, he's not here.

Vicky: Where is he?

Sharlene: Well, I don't keep tabs on him, Vicky. What's the problem?

Vicky: When will he be back?

Sharlene: I don't know. I'll tell him that you came by, if you like, have him call you?

Vicky: No, I don't want him to call me. I want to see him. I'm just going to wait, ok?

Sharlene: Ok. What's wrong?

Vicky: Your brother. He thinks I'm some kind of stupid little pushover.

Sharlene: Ok, Vicky, you better tell me what happened.

Vicky: I invested a quarter-- a lot of money into Frame Construction.

Sharlene: What?

Vicky: But there is no Frame Construction, is there? No, there is just Jasonís pocket.

Sharlene: He didnít.

Vicky: He did, and I'm going to get my money back.

Amanda: It's ok. Daddy will be here, yeah.

Sam: Hi.

Amanda: Sam -- Sam, what happened to you?

Sam: Oh, nothing. It's nothing serious.

Amanda: "Nothing serious"? Look at you!

Sam: It's ok. As a matter of fact, I feel better than I have in weeks.

Amanda: You've got bruises all over you and your clothes -- what happened to you?

Sam: I'm ok, Amanda. It's no big deal.

Amanda: How did this happen? Tell me.

Sam: So I got into a fight.

Amanda: Obviously. With whom?

Sam: The guy, and he's in a lot worse shape than I am.

[Sam groans]

Sharlene: I don't understand.

Vicky: I invested in Frame Construction because I thought John was still involved in the company.

Sharlene: Jason didn't tell you that --

Vicky: Of course he didn't! Why the hell do you think I would have invested, Sharlene?

Sharlene: Oh, my God.

Vicky: Yeah, that's exactly what I said.

Sharlene: Well, sweetheart, he is going to give it back to you.

Vicky: Oh, you bet he's going to give it back to me.

[Noise]

Sharlene: What in the world? Oh, no -- Jason! My God! Vicky, come here quick!

Vicky: Oh, I guess somebody got to him before I did, huh, Jason?

Sharlene: Jason, who did this to you?

Vicky: Come on.

Sharlene: Come on, let's get him inside, Vicky.

Vicky: Don't bleed on the floor, ok?

Sharlene: Talk to me. What happened, Jason?

Vicky: Here.

Jason: I'm fine. It's no big deal.

Sharlene: What -- "it's no big deal"? My God. You should see yourself.

Vicky: No, he shouldnít.

Sharlene: Oh, God.

Jason: Hey, hey -- Sharlie, just leave me alone.

Sharlene: No.

Jason: I'll be fine, ok?

Sharlene: Vicky, call the hospital.

Jason: No.

Vicky: Shut up, Jason.

Sharlene: Come here, Jason.

Jason: Vicky, don't call the hospital!

Sharlene: Look --

Jason: I'll be just fine.

Sharlene: All right, Vicky. We will not call the ambulance on one condition -- you tell me who did this to you.

Jason: Look, I am not in the mood for any conditions.

Sharlene: You tell me what happened right now! Who did it?

Jason: I ran into a door, a big, ugly door, all right?

Vicky: Oh.

Evan: Julie Ann?

Julie Ann: Yes, sir?

Evan: I owe you an apology. I snapped at you earlier.

Julie Ann: It's ok.

Evan: No, it's not. It's -- well, I'm really sorry. It's just things are a little tense around here right now and -- but that's no excuse for being rude.

Julie Ann: Well, am I allowed to know about this crisis?

Evan: It's stock transfers. It's kind of complicated.

Julie Ann: Well, is there anything I can do to help?

Evan: I wish there were, Julie Ann. I wish there were.

Rachel: Evan, can I talk to you for a minute?

Evan: Yes.

Rachel: I signed a memorandum in which there was a clause that enabled the board members to sell off their Cory stock.

Evan: You did?

Rachel: I obviously didn't read the memorandum very carefully, and I take full responsibility for that, it was inexcusable, but I don't understand why you didn't catch that.

Evan: Well, at the time, it didn't mean anything.

Rachel: What do you mean, it didn't mean anything? It could cost us the company.

Evan: But I think when the papers were offered for your signature the S.E.C. was blocking the takeover.

Rachel: And that's not the case now.

Evan: Right. The ruling's been overturned.

Rachel: Right, so that memorandum is still legal, so my signature can sink this company.

Evan: I'm afraid so.

Rachel: There must be something we can do.

Evan: Well, I'm working on it right now, and I feel terrible, Mrs. Cory, and you're absolutely right -- I should have caught your error, but I guess times around here have been a little tougher on me than I realize.

Rachel: Yes, I guess so.

Evan: Now, I failed you and Cory, but I promise you, I'm going to do everything I can to make it right.

Amanda: Who were you fighting with?

Sam: It doesn't matter.

Amanda: Sam, I have a right to know. Tell me.

Sam: Ok. I got in a fight with the guy who took the pictures of you and Drew.

Amanda: Who was it?

Sam: Same guy who put those pictures in the paper -- Jason Frame.

Amanda: Jason?

Sam: Yep.

Amanda: I don't believe it.

Sam: Yeah, well, he's the guy.

Amanda: You got into a fight with Jason Frame?

Sam: Yeah, and I'm not sorry about it, either. Nobody can do that to you and get away with that -- nobody.

Amanda: Sam --

Sam: Amanda, nobody has the right to do that to you.

Amanda: So you think beating somebody up is the answer?

Sam: I don't have any answers. All I know is that I love you and I'm never going to let you -- let you get hurt like that again.

Amanda: Sam, I love you, too. Please promise me that you won't do this again, please? It's wrong. Please promise me you won't do this again.

Evan: I just want you to know that this is not Mrs. Cory's fault.

Mac: I do know that, Evan. Rachel was working 14, 16 hours a day under enormous pressure. How could she not make mistakes?

Evan: And I'm assuming full responsibility.

Mac: Well, I appreciate that, but it doesn't correct the situation.

Evan: I'm working on that, sir.

Mac: You came to us as a financial wizard. I expect you to use all that expertise to try to get us out of this.

Evan: Well, I assure you that's what I'm doing.

Mac: Does that statement have a "but" on the end of it?

Evan: I'm afraid so, sir.

Mac: Go on.

Evan: Well, I haven't had much success, though I haven't stopped trying. It appears that our only counterattack is to buy every piece of free stock.

Mac: Then do it.

Evan: We canít.

Mac: Why not?

Evan: It's not enough capital. We utilized most our liquid assets at --

Iris: Daddy?

Julie Ann: Mrs. Wheeler, I told you --

Iris: You're not too busy, are you?

Julie Ann: I told her you were in an important meeting.

Iris: She did. She did her job beautifully. It's all my fault. Hello, Mr. Evans.

Evan: Bates. Evan is my first name.

Iris: Oh.

Mac: Hello, dear.

Iris: You're not too mad at me, are you?

Mac: No, no. We're almost through here. That goes for you, too, Julie Ann. Why don't you take off early for a change?

Iris: Early? It's almost 8:00 P.M. What sort of hours do you people keep?

Mac: Oh, I'm sorry. That's every night this week, isn't it?

Julie Ann: I don't mind.

Mac: I'll make it up to you, Julie Ann. I promise you.

Julie Ann: It's ok, really. Oh, Mr. Cory?

Mac: Yes.

Julie Ann: A friend of mine, a stockbroker, she -- well, never mind. That's a crazy idea.

Mac: She what?

Julie Ann: Well, she heard there are rumors that we were going to be taken over by Bennett Publishing after all. That isn't true, is it?

Mac: Perhaps you'd like to explain, Evan.

Lisa: I have not been this happy since --

Jamie: Hmm?

Lisa: Since the last time we spent the day in bed?

[Jamie chuckles]

Jamie: It was too long ago.

Lisa: Much.

Jamie: I think we should do this --

Lisa: Once a week.

Jamie: Every day.

Lisa: What about work?

Jamie: Forget work. We'll quit our jobs for a couple of years and -- until we've had enough of each other.

Lisa: Do you think that will ever happen?

Jamie: No. Never.

[Lisa and Jamie laugh]

Jamie: I could never get enough of you -- Mmm.

Lisa: Jamie?

Jamie: Hmm?

Lisa: What were you thinking about before?

Jamie: Oh, nothing.

Lisa: I know you were thinking about something.

Jamie: No, uh-uh.

Lisa: Well, you were distracted.

Jamie: No, I wasnít.

Lisa: I know you. You were somewhere else for a minute.

Jamie: I wasn't distracted.

Lisa: It's just --

Jamie: What?

Lisa: I get worried, that's all.

Jamie: I wish you wouldn't do this.

Lisa: I can't help it, Jamie, because no matter how close we get, she's always there --

Jamie: Vicky.

Lisa: Trying to tear us apart.

Jamie: Well, you're wrong. And it doesn't give us much of a chance if you keep harping about Vicky.

Lisa: I didn't think I was harping.

Jamie: I don't want to hear about it, Lisa.

[Phone rings]

Lisa: Hello?

Vicky: I need to talk to Jamie.

Lisa: Who is this?

Vicky: You know who it is. Would you put him on?

Lisa: You have no right to call --

Vicky: Lisa, don't start with me.

Jamie: Is that Vicky?

Lisa: Who else? Just a minute.

Vicky: Put him on. It's an emergency.

Lisa: I can't believe she called you here.

Jamie: What is it, Vicky?

Vicky: There's been an emergency. Jason was all beat up.

Jamie: Beaten?

Vicky: Yeah.

Jamie: How badly?

Vicky: He's a wreck.

Jamie: Did you call an ambulance?

Vicky: No, he refuses to go to the hospital. He wants you to come over and check him up.

Jamie: All right. I'll be there as soon as I can. It's my uncle. Jason's hurt. I've got to leave.

Vicky: Jamie's on his way over.

Sharlene: Boy, he always comes through for you, lord knows why. Just --

Jason: Because he's blood and he happens to be a nice guy.

Vicky: You know, I'm getting out of here before the nice guy starts asking questions about why I'm here.

Jason: What are you doing here, Vicky?

Vicky: I came to get my money back. 250,000 bucks, remember, Jason? Oh, don't worry, I'll let you off the hook today, but once you're back on your feet, you're going to pay up.

Ronnie: Ooh I seem to blame all my failures on you you do the best you can do don't let me change the way you are 'cause you're already right with me don't let me change the way you are 'cause I have a tendency to try to make you more like what I ought to be so, darling if I should tear you up don't you listen if I should break you down don't turn away I end up missing you so I just want to let you know don't let me change the way you are don't let me change the way you are don't let me change the way you are ooh, ooh

[Cheers]

Julie Ann: She was so great.

Rick: Well, this whole evening is great all the way around.

Julie Ann: Why?

Rick: Well, because you're here and because you finally agreed to go out with me.

Julie Ann: "Finally"? It's not like you were asking me every five minutes.

Rick: Well, if I thought that would have worked, I probably would have.

Julie Ann: I'm glad to be here, too.

Rick: I just hope this doesn't make any trouble for you.

Julie Ann: How do you mean?

Rick: Well, I mean, you work at "Brava," you're Mac Coryís executive assistant. I mean, you're even friends with Amanda, and after the way I handled that Marsten thing, she's not really crazy about me.

Julie Ann: Oh, we're better friends than that, and besides, I don't think she's too angry at you anymore.

Rick: Oh, no?

Julie Ann: No, she understands how much pressure you were under with the D.A.

Rick: Oh, yeah? Who told her that?

Julie Ann: Me.

Rick: Thank you. He was certainly after Mac Coryís blood, that's for sure.

Julie Ann: Well, you did what you had to do.

Rick: So much pressure from all different directions. "Get a good bust, make it stick."

Julie Ann: Hey, don't worry about it. It's over.

Rick: Yeah, you're right. No more shop talk. Let's -- let's just talk about you.

Julie Ann: Well, let's see, I had a terrific day. Everybody at work was in rotten moods.

Rick: Oh, yeah? Why is that?

Julie Ann: Because rumor has it that Cory Publishing is being taken over again.

Rick: No more shop talk.

Julie Ann: Well, what do you want to know?

Rick: I want to know about you -- what kind of books do you read? What kind of music do you listen to?

Julie Ann: Vicky and Jake.

Rick: You listen to Vicky and Jake?

Julie Ann: Hi, guys.

Vicky: Hey! Oh, this is great! You look hot.

Jake: Hey, buddy.

Rick: How you doing?

Julie Ann: And you look --

Vicky: As big as a house, I know.

Julie Ann: No. No, no. You look wonderful.

Vicky: Thanks.

Jake: Look, we didn't miss Ronnieís set by any chance, did we?

Rick: Oh, just -- just one song, that's all.

Jake: Ok. It's ok if we sit down, right?

Rick: No.

Jake: No?

Rick: Look, nothing personal. It's just that I -- you know, Julie Ann and I -- it's kind of, like, our first date.

Jake: Oh. I get the picture. Good luck. Vicky, why don't we -- why don't we get a seat before Ronnieís next set?

Vicky: Oh, I was just going to sit down here and --

Jake: That's ok. We'll just sit right over here --

Vicky: Those seats look great.

Jake: By the bar, yeah.

Vicky: Yeah, they do.

Jake: Oh.

Jason: Hey, for God's --

Jamie: Just relax.

Jason: Jamie, come --

Jamie: Relax.

Jason: Come on, come on --

Sharlene: Does he need stitches?

Jamie: No, I don't think so.

[Jason groans]

Jamie: That hurts?

Jason: What do you think?

Jamie: What about here?

Jason: Ah -- yeah. You just -- take it easy, would you?

Jamie: Hey, I'm taking it easier than the guy who worked you over.

Sharlene: How serious is this, Jamie?

Jason: Come on, Jamie --

Jamie: I think he has a couple of cracked ribs. I'm going to have to get him to the hospital for x-rays.

Jason: No.

Jamie: I'm not arguing with you, Jason. I'll get my car and pull it around back.

Sharlene: Ok.

Jason: Jamie, just forget it.

Sharlene: Who, Jason?

Jason: Butt out, Sharlie. Just leave me alone.

Sharlene: No, I'm not going to leave you alone till you tell me who did it.

Amanda: Hey, Alli, it's ok. Daddy's going to be just fine.

Amanda: Finally.

Sam: She's asleep?

Amanda: Yeah. Down for the night, I hope. I've never seen her cry like that before.

Sam: It seemed like hours.

Amanda: Yeah. Well --

Sam: Hmm. Hmm.

Amanda: I guess she just kind of figured something was wrong.

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: Sorry.

Sam: She's a sensitive kid.

Amanda: Well, she's her father's daughter. She worries about you just like I do.

Sam: I'm sorry, Amanda.

Amanda: Why?

Sam: For upsetting you.

Amanda: Oh, would you stop worrying about me?

Sam: Well, I know how you feel about fighting, so --

Amanda: Well, you did it to protect me.

Sam: I was trying to be your hero, your knight in shining armor.

Amanda: So what's wrong with that?

Sam: Well, besides the fact it's pretty stupid, not too much.

Amanda: Come on, I don't want to hear you talk like that. Maybe it wasn't the best thing to do, but I kind of like it when you protect me, you know? It makes me feel loved.

Sam: No one's going to hurt you like that again, Amanda. No one.

Amanda: I'm glad.

Sam: Well, does this mean you're not mad at me anymore?

Amanda: How could I be mad at a face like that?

Sam: It's that bad, huh?

Amanda: Well, actually, I'm kind of getting used to it.

Sam: Oh, yeah?

Amanda: Yeah, especially this lump right here.

Sam: Ooh --

Amanda: It really --

Sam: Oh, oh, oh. Ow, ow.

Amanda: Adds character.

Sam: "Character," huh?

Amanda: Character.

Sam: Well, I'll tell you what -- let me see a mirror.

Amanda: Oh, no, no. No.

Sam: Wait a minute. You said you liked it.

Amanda: I said I was getting used to it. There's a difference.

Sam: Amanda, a mirror. Please.

Amanda: Ok.

Sam: Ok.

Amanda: Ok. Ok. Fine. You win.

Sam: So do I have a black eye yet?

Amanda: No, not yet, but you will soon.

Sam: Thank you. Oh, man.

Amanda: So what do you think?

Sam: I think I shouldn't have asked for the mirror. Here, please take it away. Oh.

Amanda: What's wrong?

Sam: Sitting up.

Amanda: Well, then, lie down.

Sam: That's not too good, either.

Amanda: You're in pain.

Sam: Yeah, unless I'm getting old.

Amanda: Where does it hurt?

Sam: Everywhere.

Amanda: Point.

Sam: Well, it hurts here. Hmm.

Amanda: Where else?

Sam: Hmm, up here.

Oh. Up a little higher. Oh. Ok. Mm-hmm.

Amanda: There?

Sam: Mm-hmm. Ooh -- ow. I tell you what -- let's try that again, except a little easier, ok?

Mac: Yes. Bennett is at us again, and we may not be able to hold them off this time.

Iris: So my friends in Wall Street weren't exactly talking through their hamburgs?

Mac: Unfortunately not. Would you excuse me, dear? I want to find Rachel. She's blaming herself for everything.

Iris: Daddy, don't worry. Something will come up.

Mac: I pray you're right.

Evan: Mr. Cory?

Mac: Yes.

Evan: I'm sorry, sir.

Mac: Ok, Evan. Hindsight is 20/20. Let's forget about what might have been, start moving ahead?

Evan: Right.

Mac: Why don't you go home, do some thinking? We'll plan this strategy in the morning.

Evan: I'll be here first thing, sir.

Iris: Yes. Do some thinking, think your brains out.

Evan: Well, he's not a happy man.

Iris: Don't worry about daddy. He's very strong.

Evan: Do you think that he suspects?

Iris: No. He's a very trusting soul. That's why it was easy to make Cory Publishing vulnerable.

Evan: Well, you called it, and it's come to pass.

Iris: Yes, I've got this company right where I want it, and Rachel put it there.

Evan: Sometimes I feel sorry for her.

Iris: Why? She brought it on herself. She shouldn't be running this company or any other company.

Evan: Well, she tried.

Iris: Daddy needs someone stronger.

Evan: Is there anything else you want me to do?

Iris: No, thank you, Evan. You've done very well. I'll take it from here.

Ronnie: I know love is through and I'm so lost without you come back to me, lover love me like no other what can I do when everything is you? Our secret's in the dark, baby you took my heart what can I do when everything is on you?

[Cheers]

Rick: Well, I've got some good news. I just called headquarters, and the bad guys are taking the night off, so the captain doesn't need me until the morning.

Julie Ann: Thank you, bad guys.

Rick: Now, where were we?

Julie Ann: You were telling me about your family.

Rick: No, I wasnít. We were talking about you.

Julie Ann: Oh, I'm a boring subject.

Rick: Well, you just let me be the judge of that.

Julie Ann: Oh, I was born in Bay City, I was raised here, I went to school here, I have one brother. It's boring.

[Rick snores]

Rick: Uh -- uh -- what? Oh, I'm sorry. You're talking to me? You're talking to me?

Julie Ann: You're terrible.

Rick: Well, you're beautiful.

Julie Ann: I am?

Rick: You have no idea. You definitely have spunk.

Julie Ann: And you hate spunk.

Rick: No, I didn't say that. In fact, I admire it. I mean, the way you stood up for Mac Cory when I was after him? Fire.

Julie Ann: Well, Mac has been really good to me.

Rick: Well, he must have been to get that kind of loyalty.

Julie Ann: Well, he's been great to me and my family. I couldn't think of doing anything else.

Rick: I hope he appreciates you.

Julie Ann: He does.

Rick: Well, that's good, because I've seen my share of people and you're very special.

Vicky: Oh, thanks for bringing me out, Jake. I really needed it.

Jake: Yeah, well, you seemed awfully low on the telephone.

Vicky: I know, one of those days.

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Vicky: So, why didn't Marley show up?

Jake: She had some things to do for the new job.

Vicky: Uh-huh.

Jake: So why the sad eyes, kid? Something happen with Jamie?

Vicky: No, not Jamie.

Jake: Well, who, then?

Vicky: His uncle.

Jake: Jason?

Vicky: Yeah, well, you know, I invested in his company.

Jake: Ah, yes. One of the dumber moves I think you've made.

Vicky: I -- I'm trying to back out of it, ok?

Jake: You're going to try to get money back from Jason Frame?

Vicky: I went --

Jake: Fat chance.

Vicky: I went to the farmhouse today.

Jake: Oh, yeah? What'd he do, laugh in your face?

Vicky: No, he didn't laugh, he didn't talk. He didn't do much of anything. He was beat up.

Jake: By who?

Vicky: Somebody he said I didn't know.

Jake: And you didn't believe him?

Vicky: Would you?

Jake: Well, it's not hard to believe. I mean, there's a lot of people out there who are enemies of Jason Frame.

Vicky: Yeah, well, he's got another one to add to his list. I'm glad somebody beat him up. He got just what was coming to him.

Jamie: Oh, brother.

Lisa: Was it bad?

Jamie: Yeah, somebody really worked him over.

Lisa: Who was it?

Jamie: Jason says he doesn't know.

Lisa: Where is he now?

Jamie: He's at the hospital. I want him there at least overnight.

Lisa: Where was Vicky?

Jamie: What do you mean?

Lisa: Well, she was the one who called you over there.

Jamie: Well, I think she was gone by the time I got there.

Lisa: Really?

Jamie: Yeah.

Lisa: I wonder why.

Jamie: Why what?

Lisa: Why she didn't wait to see you.

Jamie: Well, maybe she had something else to do. Can we not make a major issue out of this? You know, I'm hungry. Are you hungry? I'm hungry.

Lisa: Yeah. I am, too. I guess I'll put the steaks on.

Jamie: You're going to cook?

Lisa: Yeah, I'm going to cook -- steak and salad and garlic bread -- the whole bit.

Jamie: Well, what are you standing there for? Get out there and rattle those pots and pans.

Lisa: Oh, you sure know how to sweet-talk a woman. How do you want your steak?

Jamie: Charred on the outside, rare on the inside, delicately seasoned with a light, but pungent bernaise.

Lisa: Medium?

Jamie: Mm-hmm.

Lisa: Well, come on. You're going to make the salad.

Jamie: Ha. I knew there was a catch.

Lisa: Come on. I have all sorts of good stuff to put in it -- endives, jacamar.

Jamie: Well, I just want to make a phone call first.

Lisa: Well, you can make it out there.

Jamie: Oh, no, you're cooking and I don't -- I don't want to disturb your concentration.

Lisa: Who are you calling?

Jamie: I just want to call Vicky to let her know that Jasonís ok.

Lisa: I see.

Jamie: I mean, since she was the one who called and told me about his injuries.

Lisa: Yeah. Ok.

[Phone rings]

Vicky's voice: Hey, you guessed it. I'm not here, but please -- hang-ups make me crazy, so just leave a message and I promise I'll call you back -- if you're not boring, that is. Wait for the beep.

[Answering machine beeps]

Jamie: Hi, Vicky, it's Jamie. I just wanted to let you know that Jasonís ok. I guess we missed each other at the farm. I wanted to see how you were doing, too. So give me a call when you get a chance. Thanks.

Rachel: Iris. I didn't know you were here.

Iris: Where's daddy?

Rachel: He's in with Evan.

Iris: Oh, that poor man.

Rachel: That poor man could cost your father his company.

Iris: From what I hear, he wasn't solely responsible.

Rachel: Are you waiting for your father?

Iris: No. As a matter of fact, I wanted to talk to you.

Rachel: Why?

Iris: Well, daddy must be very upset about what's happened.

Rachel: "Upset" is an understatement. He could lose his company.

Iris: He doesn't have to.

Rachel: I don't think you understand the situation, Iris. He doesn't have any more capital to fight the takeover.

Iris: I don't think you understand it. I think you should listen to me.

Rachel: Why?

Iris: Because I have the capital.

Rachel: Oh, yes? Where are we going with this?

Iris: Look, when I spoke to my broker about all the trouble that Cory Publishing was having, I liquidated a great deal of my assets. It came to quite a sum --

Rachel: Yes, I'm sure it is.

Iris: Enough to fight this takeover and win.

Rachel: Mac wouldn't use your money.

Iris: Well, I think he would. I think he needs my help.

Rachel: He wants to handle this himself, Iris.

Iris: He does, or is that what you want?

Rachel: I want him to be happy.

Iris: Help me to help him. I have the assets to save his company, and I want to do so.

Rachel: And?

Iris: And I want you to convince him to accept my help.

Rachel: You would really do this to help him?

Iris: Of course I would. I love my father more than anything in the world. There's just one condition.
